NYC rockers the Walkmen spent a good chunk of this past summer sweltering away in the aptly named Sweet Tea Studio in Oxford, Mississippi taking things at a Southern-style pace, taking seven hour lunches and chipping away at what should soon see the light of day as their fourth full-length. Sessions on both sides of the Mississip have yielded a selection of brilliant new material, including Lemon Hill, their very first all instrumental track, a hypnotic, pulsating samba style back drop with luminous guitar meandering over top. Visqueen and the Subjects open.
Listen to The Walkmen's "Lemon Hill."
